I have always categorized myself as a calm and collected type of person. I easily go with the flow, actually enjoy change, and don’t find myself getting stressed out too often. There are those times, however, where everything seems to be pilling up… the chores, the workload, the activities, the bills, and so on! I know you feel me on this one… For 2017, I want to make sure that I keep my cool – even in those moments when everything is far too busy – and I’m sharing a few ways that I am doing so. Want to join me?
Becoming a mom has been my greatest success and my most cherished role. I was never one to wear graphic tees until I had a baby & then I realized just HOW essential they are in my mom wardrobe. Not only are they super cute, but they allow me to have fun with my style – and they can be dressed up or down. These tees tell the world about my favorite title I’ve ever been given: MAMA! I know that once you see these, you will want one (or all) for yourself! They also make the best gifts for mom friends in your life.
Picking out a name. This is easily one of the most exciting (and difficult) parts of finding out the gender of your child! A name is so very special. It is one of the first things they will hear, the first word they often learn to read & write, and what they are identified as for their entire lives. Some of us choose quickly and had been planning for years, others go with a traditional family name or perhaps a Jr., and others brainstorm day and night for months trying to decide.
When I started my blog, I had so many ideas of what I wanted to see. I started it a few months after my son Ryland was born, about 2 years ago now – and as a young wife, a new mom, a youth pastor alongside my husband, a business owner, a Christian, a friend, a daughter, and a lover of so many different things, I didn’t know exactly how to find my niche and each name that I came up with for myself just seemed too restricting. After putting it on hold, it was on New Years Eve night 2014/15 that I settled upon Faithfully Beautiful.
Food. We all love it and we all need it. But for some of us, the process of planning, shopping, and cooking is just downright overwhelming. I have never been one that was great in the kitchen – and each week when it’s time to head to the grocery store I start to get anxious about what I’m going to be cooking. With a busy work schedule, two babies, and all the other details of our everyday lives, it seems I have let getting on a great meal planning schedule fall to the wayside. I have heard so many good things about Hello Fresh from friends, so I decided it was time to give it a try for myself!
You may be able to shut the doors to your bedroom and make sure that no one heads toward the laundry room – but when hosting holiday parties this year there is no way to escape them seeing your bathroom! It can be intimidating having people over to your home, especially when you’ve had so much to do leading up to this season, but small details can go a long way! When it comes to visitors in your home, I’m sharing a few ways to make your guest bathroom welcoming and comfortable, so neither you or your party guest have to feel embarrassed!
We know them & let’s face it, we ARE them. The MOM BOSSES in your life that you know work so hard to provide for their family all while being an awesome mama! I am inspired daily by so many of my friends, fellow bloggers, and business owners that I meet that are running businesses and babies! It is simply amazing that we live in a time where it is so accessible for moms to make a living from home! For the mom boss lady in your life, I have put together some gifts that I’m sure she will absolutely love!
